Excellent opportunity for a funds lawyer with private equity and/or credit funds experience to join a global asset manager.

My client, a global alternative asset manager, is looking for a quality funds lawyer who ideally has private equity and/or credit funds experience to join its lean legal team.

The successful candidate will form part of a five-person team responsible for fund legal matters across a wide range of strategies on a global basis. They will take primary responsibility for the structuring, negotiation and closing of investors into several pooled funds, co-investment funds, segregated mandates, and similar vehicles, and will work with others in the team on other funds. They will also be involved in associated matters such as leverage and bridge financing and carried interest arrangements, involving a deep level of interaction across a wide range of stakeholders across the organisation.

The responsibilities of the role include, but are not limited to:

*Advising on fund formations in conjunction with the internal tax team and external counsel, taking the lead on certain funds and acting in in support of more senior team members on other matters.

* Managing external counsel and the delivery of LPAs, subscription agreements, side letters, management agreements and other contractual arrangements.

* Negotiating with potential investors.

* Contributing to new product approval processes and drafting of PPMs.

* Acting as an internal point of contact for Marketing & Client Relations staff and portfolio managers.

* Acting as a general point of contact for inbound questions.

* Work closely with the Fund Administration team (including to ensure overlapping matters are adequately captured).

* Become a trusted contact and advisor for internal teams.

* Assist with the planning or provision of training to staff.

If you are a funds formation lawyer who has experience in the private equity funds space and are working at a top law firm or leading financial services organisation, I would be very keen to speak with you about this excellent opportunity.
